Asking for help

This morning I went with my Mum to see the counsellor that she’d seen a few times when things had got a bit too much after she and my Dad parted company. We made the appointment a couple of months ago at a point when I was feeling very concerned about David, worried about my dad and Adam’s mum and had begun to feel very much like I had when Tom was very young and Adam had been traveling every second week and I had ended up on anti-depressants for a while. I’m a little less immediately worried about David … Continue reading Asking for help

Friday fragments

Hosted by Mrs4444. Whenever I come to write a Friday Fragments post I am reminded that it would be a very good idea to have a draft open all week and pop all the little bits and pieces of the week straight in there to be ready for sharing with the world at the end of the week.

I’ve twittered a link to this already (as is only right) but just in case any of you manage to miss that either on Twitter or Facebook I feel it is imperative that I share this thing of beauty here on my blog as well. Thanks to a link in Tigtog’s regular feature Femmostroppo Reader I found my way to Under the Mad Hat where I have been privileged to read her creation entitled Pride and Twitterverse. Some favourite snippets: MrsB:A Mr Bingley–worth 50,000 followers a year–has joined Twitter! He’s brought a friend, Mr Darcy–worth 100,000 followers a year! Pls … Continue reading Pride and Twitterverse

Twitterable recipes

In a moment of silliness last night I challenged my fellow Twits to produce recipes that could be squished in to 140 characters (well, 133 actually, given that we’re hash-tagging them #recipe). So far we have:From me: mimbles: Wrap pork fillet w/ proscuitto, put on bed of sliced red apple & onion, drizzle w/ olive oil, season with black pepper & sage, bake #recipe 7 minutes ago from TweetDeck · Reply · View Tweet mimbles: Brown 500g mince , 1 onion chopped + garlic – lots; add 800g tinned tomatoes, basil & oregano, 40g tomato paste, serve w/ pasta #recipe … Continue reading Twitterable recipes
